Many homeowners do not know how vital the cleanup of falls is for the upkeep of properties. The Excel Lawns & Landscape do fall clean up the right way and we do the job until you’re completely satisfied. When fall clean-up is done correctly, it can provide many benefits for your property, including:

  • Defending against weed infestation: adding fertilizer in the fall can help prevent weeds from sprouting in the spring.
  • Supports the wilting and drying out of your warm-weather plants during cold, frigid weather and frost.
  • Keeps fungi from spreading: when debris and leaves are not cleaned up, the soil in your yard can’t receive essential nutrients.

You have questions, we have answers. Below are the top questions we get about our Des Moines landscaping services.

Fall lawn cleaning is essential for your lawn and garden as it prepares them for the winter months and sets the foundation for a healthy growing season in the spring. It involves tasks such as removing fallen leaves and debris, pruning plants, and preparing the soil for winter. Fall lawn cleaning helps prevent disease and mold, promotes better nutrient absorption, and protects plants from harsh winter conditions.

The timing of fall cleaning can vary depending on your location and climate. In general, it is recommended to schedule fall cleaning when the majority of leaves have fallen from the trees but before the ground freezes. For most regions, this typically occurs during the late fall or early winter months.

While some fall yard cleanup tasks can be done by homeowners, hiring a professional service offers several benefits. Professional lawn and garden experts have the experience, knowledge, and specialized tools to ensure a thorough and effective cleanup. They can also provide additional services like lawn aeration, dethatching, and winterization, which contribute to a healthier and more beautiful landscape.

While some leaves can be left on the ground to decompose and contribute to the soil’s organic matter, it is essential to remove the majority of fallen leaves from your lawn and garden beds during fall yard maintenance. An excessive layer of leaves can create a dense mat that suffocates grass and plants, leading to potential issues like mold and disease. Proper leaf removal ensures a cleaner and healthier environment for your landscape.

The crew at Excel worked on our front porch retaining wall. They did excellent work, were courteous, prompt in getting the job done, and even came out a few months later just to double-check the wall during cold weather. Thanks for all you did. I will definitely recommend your services.

I called and they actually answered the phone and it didn’t go to voicemail. They came to see the job and gave me a fair quote and a date when they would be able to do it. The job was completed on time and I’m very happy with the work of the team.

The recent ice storm had the sidewalks and driveway a sheet of ice. They came out twice to treat the areas. I was impressed with not only the work they performed but also that I did not have to call them to remind them. Rarely do I encounter from others the great service Excel provided. I am thrilled I hired them.
